Pasta, at least the kind made with semolina (white) flour, acts on the body the same way as simple sugar. It can get absorbed very quickly and cause a sugar spike or sugar rush. To avoid that from happening, you do not cook the pasta too much. Allow the pasta to be cooked only until it just reaches el dente, then stop cooking it. It will be a lovely and firm texture and not a mush in your mouth. So you could serve an easy pasta with these meatballs and make this a great meal to serve. Enjoy this dish whenever you are in the mood for pasta, and especially when you are short on time. Enjoy!
